DETROIT (WWJ) — An investigation is underway after a crash on Woodward Ave. killed an elderly man in Detroit on Monday.

Northbound Woodward near State Fair — between Seven Mile Rd. and Eight Mile Rd. — is closed to clean up the aftermath of the crash that included a pickup truck and a sedan.

Multiple reports indicate that the crash happened just after the car was being pursued in connection with a possible human trafficking case. The car pulled away at a high rate of speed from police vehicles before crashing into the pickup.

A 72-year-old man in the truck — who was not involved in the chase — was killed. Two women who were inside of the sedan have been hospitalized.
